Botanical illustration and flower press making workshop, on the banks of the Lachlan River at the CORRIDOR project. Facilitated by the CORRIDOR project’s Project Manager, Phoebe Cowdery, participants will harvest endemic grasses and plants for pressing in their own self-made botanical press and, also be tutored in botanical illustration by renowned artist, Angus Fisher.

Fisher’s art practice has always dealt with nature and humankind’s relationship with the natural world. For Fisher, the idea of nature is a not a static term, but an evolving concept. Through the detailed study of history and natural subject matter, his work grapples with the idea of how nature exists, and has existed, in human imagination. Fisher does not only investigate ecology through his subjects, but the evolving attitudes and changing philosophical interpretations of the wider natural world. Primarily working with etching and drawing, he utilises traditional working techniques, methodologies and aesthetics to place his work in direct connection to historical contexts and traditions.

Fisher’s work can be found in the collection of The National Gallery of Australia, The Art Gallery of NSW, The New South Wales State Library, The National Art School, Australian Galleries in Sydney and Melbourne as well as private collectors
